7:01 am
have been against the law today, monday, june 6th, 2011. captions paid for by nbc-universal television and good morning. welcome to "today" on a monday morning. i'm lawymatt lauer. >> i'm meredith vieira. details the ill coming in about what happened in iraq. jim miklaszewski is at the pentagon. >> reporter: good morning, meredith. this is one of the worst if not one of the single worst attacks on u.s. military forces in iraq since the official end of formal combat operations there in iraq last august. according to u.s. military and iraqi officials, five u.s. service members were killed in a rocket attack on a u.s. military base, one of many, in or around baghdad this morning. now, the timing of this attack
7:02 am
cannot be dismissed because this comes at a time when the u.s. military is, in fact, preparing to withdraw all combat forces, all u.s. military forces, from iraq by the end of the year. meredith? >> does that now call that into question whether or not those troops will, indeed, be removed by the end of the year? >> reporter: that's why the timing of this is so important. the iraqi government itself is struggling with how to ask the u.s. military to stay. there are currently 50,000 u.s. troops there. again, they're supposed to be out by the end of the year. but it's clear that the iraqis cannot provide all the kind of defenses that they need and they're preparing to ask the u.s. so, again, it appears it's aimed at convincing the american people that all american troops should leave iraq by the end of this year. >> jim, thank you so much. it is 7:02. here's matt. >> two breaking news stories at
7:03 am
home. new evacuations ordered in arizona where a massive wildfire is raging, this as anxious homeowners in parts of the midwest are keeping a nervous eye on the rising missouri river. we have two reports beginning in arizona with nbc's george lewis. george, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. these are monster fires burning in arizona, more than a quarter million acres scorched, 2,300 people on the fire lines, thousands of homes threatened. >> we just got the line up. >> reporter: firefighters spent the weekend attacking the fast-moving blaze from the air. the dense and rugged forest has made it difficult for ground crews to get equipment into the area. officials say this particular wildfire near the new mexico border has been unusually hard to get a handle on. >> it's the way it's behavinbeh. heat such that we can't get anywhere near it. it's such that our air resources are of limited value because we
7:04 am
need people on the ground with the other resources we have. >> anybody not fire personnel, stay off 191 and 180. >> reporter: on sunday afternoon, the highway jumped highway 180 into the town. >> there's been no fuel treatment there. it is going to be a very hot fire. >> reporter: the fire swept through beaver creek ranch and destroyed several vacation cabins. daytime looked more like night in the small town of alpine. >> it feels surreal. >> reporter: with mandatory evacuations ordered over the weekend throughout the area, police escorted residents back to their homes on sunday allowing them only a few minutes to choose what to save. >> they said 15 minutes, and they were very gracious with us. i know we had closer to maybe 30 or 45. >> i was driving faster so we wouldn't hold up -- >> reporter: this woman wasn't as lucky. >> i got down in there, another sheriff came pulling up and said i had to get out.
7:05 am
i said i had an escort. he said, no, you have to leave now because the fire was right there so we had to turn around and leave. >> reporter: with zero containment and hot temperatures expected today, firefighters will be dealing with 50-mile-an-hour winds. meredith? >> george lewis, thank you very much. authorities have asked thousands to evacuate in parts of the middest where record rainfall and snow melt could lead to historic flooding. miguel almaguer is in pierre with that story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it's going to be a critical day along the missouri river. record water flow is surging down the river from a dam just upstream. there's no question the water level will rise here. bad news for home owners who only have a few feet or in some cases inches to spare. swollen and about to surge even higher, the missouri river is threatening to swallow homes and take lives. in north and south dakota, nearly 20,000 people have been
7:06 am
asked to evacuate. >> it's very, very traumatic for a lot of people. >> reporter: but many refuse to leave. instead, they fortify homes and protect communities on the water's edge. still, the rising river threatens to spill over levees and burst banks. >> we have already said good-bye, and we've shed our tears and said good-bye to the house. >> reporter: across the plains, they could see the worst flooding in decades. >> i'm telling our citizens they should assume the levees will not hold. they should move out of the area that will be affected. >> reporter: with the missouri nearly 2,400 miles long, seven states face serious flooding. a series of six dams control the river's flow. today's record release will gush even more water downstream as reservoirs sit nearly full. there's too much winter water to hold back. >> mother nature really put a significant event to us in a
7:07 am
huge rainfall event. there's no way you can really plan for a rainfall of that magnitude. >> reporter: the national guard has scrambled to shore levees and reinforce riverbanks, the water so dangerous 180 miles of the river is shut down. today, the missouri is rising and so is the fear. after today's release, the drama simply won't end. tomorrow brings yet another record water release. the missouri river here isn't expected to crest until july. that means a possibility of threats all summer long. meredith, back to you. >> ann's off today. natalie is at the news desk. good morning. >> good morning, matt and meredith. good morning, everyone. the aftermath of last month's deadly weather. officials in joplin now say that devastating ef-5 tornado has claimed three more lives as several other residents died from their injuries, taking the total death toll now to 141.
7:08 am
tensions are running high in the middle east yet again thisg morning. nbc's stephanie gosk is following the story from tripoli, libya. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. well, taking their inspiration from the peaceful demonstrations of the arab spring, unarmed palestinians and their supporters challenged the israeli military on the syria-israel border for the second time in a month. and for the second time in a month it lead to bloodshed. [ gunfire ] >> reporter: gunfire again in the golan heights. unarmed palestinians and their supporters attempted to push across the border from syria into israel. [ gunfire ] >> reporter: when warning shots didn't stop them, direct fire did. israeli officials are calling it a deliberate provocation, supported, they say, by the syrian government to deflect attention from its own internal uprising. it was the worst violence between the two countries in more than 30 years. syria says 22 were killed, israel says only 12 were injured. and with the new front in the
7:09 am
arab spring taking hold in israel, a familiar uprising entered a new phase. in yemen, thousands celebrated the sudden and unexpected departure of president ali abdullah saleh. he fly to saudi arabia for specialized medical treatment after being injured in a rocket attack on his compound friday. an operation reportedly removed shrapnel from the leader's chest, but there is no official word on his condition. many hope the man that has ruled yemen for 33 years as a dictator will not come back, and they fear what might happen if he does. >> i think there's a strong chance that the civil war will take place in yemen. and yemen will see a war that will last for many, many, many years. >> reporter: despite what the embattled president decides to do, it may be too early for celebrations. even if saleh does not return, there are still competing armed factions vying for power in yemen, and an active branch of al qaeda looking to take
7:10 am
advantage of the chaos. natalie? >> stephanie gosk in tripoli, libya, this morning. thank you, stephanie. several u.s. missile strikes bombarded suspected militant target along the afghan border this morning. at least 16 people were killed as the u.s. ratchets up the pressure on insurgents in the area. former international monetary fund chief dominique strauss-kahn appears in a new york city court today where he will plead not guilty to charges of sexually assaulting a hotel maid. he resigned from his imf post last month. and another nail-biter in the nba finals last night as the miami heat took game three beating the dallas mavericks 88-86. with a tied game and 39 seconds on the clock, chris bosh scored the winning points despite being injured earlier in the game. the miracle on the hudson plane could have used a little help from former pilot chesley "actually" sullenberger on sunday. take a look as the famous airbus got stuck while the flatbed
7:11 am
truck tried turning a corner in new jersey. after an hour, the plane was back on its way. it will be on display soon at the carolina aviation museum in charlotte, north carolina. i'm sure folks will be lining up to see it. it's 7:11. back to matt, meredith, and al. huge plane. >> beautiful plane. >> trying to get through the roads of new jersey, not so easy. >> the crowds will be lining up today to wish you happy birthday, natalie morales. happy birthday to you. >> thank you. >> and many happy returns. it's also a very big day, speaking of happy returns. back in february, end of february, one of our favorite people around here, camera operator bob yeagher, took a serious fall. very serious fall. he has been out ever since and is back with us this morning. [ applause ] >> yea! >> good to have you, pal. [ applause ] >> welcome back. we missed you like crazy. we really did. >> sure did. >> nice to be back with everyone. so grateful. thank you for all the cards and letters and emails.
7:12 am
texts. >> we love you. >> not the same without you. >> really didn't call for a speech. but -- >> on the microphone, matt. >> we love you, we do. >> how does it look underneath that bus? >> be out in another few months, al. >> now he knows he's really back. >> right. >> we hurt the ones we love. >> mr. roker with a check of the weather. >> all right, bob yeagher knows the heat is on. we're going to tell you the heat is on, as well. minneapolis today getting to 92. 99 in memphis. looking at more records. factor in the humidity, you've got the heat index. temperatures approaching 100 in dallas and houston. and the heat's not going anywhere any time soon. tomorrow it spreads to washington, d.c., continues in chicago, moving into wednesday, those 90-degree readings move into new york city, and as far west as the southwest with temperatures again in the
7:13 am
good monday morning to you. it's a back to work monday. we have a few light, isolated showers moving around out there. overall, we are looking good. mild with a building breeze. warming trend for the bay area. finally, it's going to feel like summer around here. the first official day. 65 in fremont. 67 degrees in santa rosa. 60 in places like san francisco. watch for showers, possibly thunderstorms in afternoon. it's going to warm up nicely. that's your latest weather. meredith? >> al, thank you very much. there are growing questions over the indictment of former presidential candidate john edwards for allegedly using campaign funds to hide an affair. did the government overreach? nbc's senior investigative correspondent, lisa myers, has the latest. good morning, lisa. >> reporter: good morning. usually when a disgraced politician gets indicted, there is widespread applause. but not this time. even some who find edwards' behavior despicable question the
7:14 am
strength of this case. john edwards' former mistress, pr rielle hunter has made no public comment about the indictment. this weekend she was all smiles, posing with the little girl she shares with edwards, 3-year-old frances quinn. these photos obtained by nbc news, a striking contrast to this one, as edwards prepared to face the media throng after being charged with six felonies. >> i did not break the law. >> reporter: edwards spent the weekend out of sight at his estate, focused, a spokesman said, on getting daughter emma claire ready for camp. a friend of late wife elizabeth told nbc that despite john's betrayal, no one wanted him to face criminal charges. they worry about the couple's young children, jack and emma claire. local reaction is less forgiving. >> i have no trust in someone that continually lies. >> john edwards has become a rather pathetic figure.
7:15 am
>> reporter: edwards is charged with soliciting and covering up almost a million dollars, provided by two wealthy donors. and used to keep hunter and later their child hidden away in lavish homes and on private jets while he ran for president. >> thank you. thank you. >> reporter: though the payments did not go to edwards' campaign, the government alleges they amounted to unlawful campaign contributions because they were meant to keep his candidacy viable. edwards' lawyers say the money was a gift from friends to hide the affair from his wife. the indictment has triggered unusual criticism of the justice department. from conservatives -- >> i think he's a reprehensible person, but not every scum or liar or reprehensible person is a criminal. and the federal government seems to be criminalizing bad behavior. >> reporter: and from campaign watchdogs -- >> i think that john edwards is a lousy human being, but i think this is a really lousy and flimsy criminal case. >> reporter: a "washington post" editorial said, "it is troubling that the justice department
7:16 am
would choose to devote its scarce resources to pursuing this questionable case." but others argue that prosecutors have more evidence than they reveal, and that these kind of campaign finance abuses need to be prosecuted. >> what the government says is there has to be a line. john edwards crossed that line. we believe it's criminal behavior. >> reporter: hunter's publicist said edwards and hunter now raise their daughter together and see each other quite often. a friend of edwards told us that the senator and his parents have a close relationship with quinn and see her quite often. meredith? >> lisa myers, thank you very much. it is 7:16. once again, here's matt. >> thank you. john edwards isn't the onliy former vice presidential candidate making headlines. sarah palin is as well. our chief white house correspondent joins us, chuck, good morning you to. let's not just talk about what sarah palin is doing to make headlines. let's talk about what former chair of the democratic national party howard dean is saying to
7:17 am
make headlines. he's warning democrats against the traditional refrain that in an election, barack obama would route sarah palin. he says sarah palin can win. what's the reason for his comments? >> well, what howard dean is saying is that the biggest opponent that president obama faces is not anybody who could become the republican nominee. it's the issue of the economy and the unemployment rate. so the point he was trying to make was, look, even sarah palin when you've got 9% unemployment, when you've got a lot of people questioning whether this housing market's ever going to recover, whether government and the stimulus even work, that anybody, any republican nominee can give president obama a race. i can tell you this -- if you would ask the white house and their political strategists who would they prefer to run against, they would pick palin every single time. >> back to howard dean. he did single out another candidate. he talked about john huntsman, former governor of utah and the former ambassador to china. he said he would pose the
7:18 am
toughest challenge for barack obama. why does he match up so well? >> well, right now he has positioned himself as the moderate in this race. and if you believe this country is either center left or center right, the one thing pretty much everybody agrees with, it's center something. and huntsman is the most moderate, probably the most electable that's sitting in this field. the problem for huntsman is he doesn't look like a guy who's going to be able to win the republican primary. over the weekend he announced he's not going to compete at all in iowa. not going to do that. i can tell you there are a lot of people that have never become president who skip states. you can't skip states, particularly swing states like iowa. >> something got your attention, i know, in reading your comments over the weekend. so newt gingrich announces he's running for the republican nomination a few weeks ago. and then right now, he goes on a two-week vacation with his wife. you think it's odd timing, why? >> it is. he already knew when he was going to announce his run for president. and when you go, you go. and there are a lot of things going on right now. he missed another candidate cattle call over the weekend in
7:19 am
washington, d.c. he sent a videotape rather than attend live. there's obviously some debate prep he should be doing, lots of stuff going on the ground. >> let me flip the point over on you, chuck. in the past he has received criticism that he had allowed some of his previous marriages deteriorate in part because of his own political ambition. here he is on vacation with his wife. why shouldn't we applaud that? >> well, why not do this vacation and announce afterward. that's what seems odd about it. when you do this, when you announce, it's all in. that's when you do that, you take the time. it's odd timing especially, matt, considering how poorly his announcement went. you would think he would be doing everything he could to fix that and while week one didn't go well, make sure week two, week three, week four -- particularly while there's so much attention from the presidential race. he's missing. i had iowa republican activists e-mailing me, where's newt, why
7:20 am
did he do this? >> chuck todd in washington. thank you very much. >> reporter: you got it. it's 19 minutes after the hour. once again, meredith? >> thank you. there was a scary scene on new york's long island over the weekend when a big wind gust blew away three bounce houses with children inside. john yang has that story. oh, my god. >> reporter: it was a terrifying sight caught on cell phone video. three inflated bounce houses or moonwalks picked up by the wind at a long island soccer tourism and tossed into the air with kids playing inside. >> stay here. >> where's my daughter? >> i couldn't believe it. it was like something out of a movie. kids were knocked over. there were kids everywhere. >> reporter: lara radigan was waiting in line when she got a rope caught on her neck. >> a rope got caught on my neck and dragged me over. >> reporter: one cartwheeled on the grounds. >> everyone jumped on top. probably 100 on each one holding it down.
7:21 am
>> i tried to grab on, and it knocked me down. >> reporter: police said 13 people were taken to hospitals with minor injuries. it's not the first time something like this has happened. in the tucson, arizona, area, three separate incidents since february alone. the most recent caught on cell phone video. parents and teachers evacuated the bounce house before wind whipped it around a light pole. six kids were slightly injured by debris. in february at a birthday party, two sisters were in a wind-blown bounce house. >> i closed my eyes, and i just felt myself bumping and -- and being tossed around. >> reporter: her sister, elissa, ended up on a roof two houses away. >> she was crying. she was full of blood. you know, her head, her face. >> reporter: she had a concussion and required staples to close a cut in her scalp. in april, strong winds blew a bounce house away in rockland county, new york. four children had minor injuries. the federal consumer product safety commission estimated that from 2005 to 2007 all types of
7:22 am
bounce house accidents sent an average of 6,000 people a year to emergency rooms. most of them aged 5 to 14. the most frequent injury -- broken bones. they warn operators to anchor them properly, but not all states regulate their use which concerns parents. >> never in my mind imagined that the thing would take off and fly. >> reporter: a popular attraction with an unexpected danger. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: for "today," john yang, nbc news, new york. and coming up, morbid curiosity. the people who line up every morning for a chance to be in court at casey anthony's murder trial. we'll have details and the latest on that case. first, this is "today" on nbc.

7:27 am
have to hold off on talks until they can come with ballot language on the reforms. they voted to put a reform on the ballot. the unions say why wait? let's talk reform right here, right now. >> this rv invites them to come across the street and begin negotiations at our table. we are 150 steps from the front door. >> reporter: these are unions representing ark techs, enginee engineers, maintenance supervisors. they are facing a $115 million deficit and more red ink is expected in two or three years. >> thank you. now, we are going to check the forecast. christina, it's going to get better for us, huh in. >> boy, we had a lot of angry people last week. we are looking good. no showers now. the radar is dry.

7:31 am
would you pay to see a tiger attack live prey right in front of you? we'll tell you about an attraction at an animal park with a firestorm of controversy. natalie morales, we'll show you what happened when she traveled all the way to colombia. let's start with the murder trial of casey anthony, entering its third week today. nbc kerry sanders is in orlando with the very latest. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, meredith. today prosecutors in the court are putting forth their technical case, the crime scene forensic evidence they say proves that casey anthony murdered her 2-year-old daughter, caylee. meantime, outside the courthouse, again today, the public jostling for tickets for seats inside the 23rd floor of this courthouse. almost every day 3 1/2 hours before court begins -- >> go, g go.
7:32 am
>> reporter: -- there's a race. no someone is allowed on courthouse property until exactly 5:30 a.m. at that moment from sidewalk and back allies, the curious hoof it for position. >> number one in the line. >> reporter: there are 62 seats a day set aside for the public, spectators from across the country, traveling here to see for themselves the 25-year-old mother casey anthony, accused of murdering her daughter caylee. >> it's wonderful to be a part of it. and we're really excited the public has an opportunity to be a witness to this and see the action in the courtroom. >> you can see the root portion of the hair is distorted. >> reporter: on saturday, karen lowe, an fbi expert on trace evidence, began to detail the prosecution's forensic evidence. a single strand of hair taken from the trunk of casey anthony's car, that the fbi crime lab concluded fell from the scalp of a corpse. >> one of the items had a hair that exhibited --
7:33 am
>> reporter: the defense arg gus not only is the testing inconclusive that the hair was from a dead person but that the single strand was even caylee's. >> the best we have at this point is that the hair either belonged to caylee, casey, cindy or even cindy's mother. any other maternal relative? >> correct. >> reporter: casey now admits she waited 31 days to tell anyone her daughter was missing. when she did, the store that a nanny had caylee was all made up. prosecutors allege casey stowed her daughter's dead body in the trunk of her car before eventually dumping it in the woods near her home. >> this is my label identifying what's inside the can. >> reporter: prosecutors claim they captured the stench of death. orange county senior crime scene analyst explained how the odor was extracted from the trunk of casey's car. >> this is the very first time you've ever taken air samples, correct? >> yes, it was. >> you have no training
7:34 am
whatsoever in the collection or preservation of air samples? >> this is the first time i've heard it done, that's correct. >> reporter: the cans have not been opened in court and the judge may never allow it. if he does, it will be the first time this sort of evidence has ever been presented in a u.s. courtroom. meredith? >> kerry sanders, thank you very much. pat brown is a criminal profilerauthor of "the profiler," and savannah guthrie, our legal analyst. good morning. as kerry mentioned, the prosecution is now in the scientific phase of its case. how important was the testimony regarding that hair found in the trunk? >> it's incredibly important because, of course, for the last few weeks we've been hearing these witnesses talk about the lies that casey anthony told, her behavior, but the bottom line is, we haven't yet seen scientific evidence that ties casey anthony to this crime scene.
7:35 am
this single piece of hair, if the prosecution expert is believed, shows that casey -- caylee anthony's body was in the trunk of the car after death, but there are some problems with the science, as the defense pointed out. >> exactly. and she admitted that she can't say for certain -- with certainty that is, in fact, a hair from caylee. >> not only can she not say with certainty if it's caylee's hair, she can't say with 100% if this is a hair that fell off the body after death. that's a crucial fact. >> also this testimony that the prosecution is expected to present this week about the stench of death, what they say is the odor of caylee anthony's decomposed body in the trunk of her car. she have admitted they have never collected air samples before, they are not trained to do so. is this a risky piece of evidence to present to a jury? >> i think it's very risky. obviously, if it works, this would be a profound piece of evidence for the jurors. on the other hand, the prosecute ares already have lots of testimony from varying witnesses
7:36 am
about that powerful foul odor inside the trunk of the car. they say it was unmistakenably human decomposition. to use this novel science, something that potentially, if there were a conviction, could be the basis of being overturned on appeal, i'm not sure why the prosecutors want to go that far. >> yeah. pat, prior to this trial casey had said repeatedly that her daughter was kidnapped. then you have that opening argument from the defense that said, no, actually she wasn't kidnapped, she drown in the family pool and casey's father helped cover it up, in fact, casey was molested by her father george as a trial. what do you make of that defense strategy? >> i think it's a very stupid defense strategy. we thank you, jose baez. he's basically admitted that child died in the home, so we can already get that one out of the way. now we have all this physical testimony coming in about, you know, i think it's pretty good, actually, because what we're doing is showing that not only did that child die in the home, but then casey's running around with a car with her dead child
7:37 am
in the back of it. so, they set up -- the prosecution set up a good thing. they showed her as a really cold-blooded psychopath for the past week. i think anybody sitting there is going, wow, you know, that's a scary woman. and jose baez made another stupid move by throwing the antho anthonys under the bus. only three people in the world that believe in casey and he just tossed them out. i mean, now there's nobody. i think the jury is already looking at her as someone capable of killing and now the physical evidence is showing she's the one that had the body with her. >> do you think the defense will have to put casey on the stand? >> i think they're up against the wall right now. there's not much left they can do. i think they actually might take the chance of putting her on the stand hoping, because they have a little interesting thing going on with cindy anthony. cindy anthony was not well liked until cindy anthony took the stand. now there are people out there saying, we really feel sorry for cindy. now, i guess they might be hoping casey can pull off the same thing. put her on the stand, have her start sobbing and crying and
7:38 am
looking pitiful and maybe one person on the jury will say, that's one messed up girl. maybe she really didn't kill her daughter on purpose. i think that's what the defense is going to hope for. >> pat brown, savannah guthrie, thank you both. now let's get a check of the weather from al. >> "today's" weather is brought to you by new carmel. >> got a little surprise for your grandma? >> i do! grandma, she's in enid, oklahoma, we want to tell her i'm expecting and this will be her fourth great grandchild. >> that's fantastic. when are you due? >> december. >> is this your first? >> my first, too. >> hope you're watching, grandma. >> they're on central time. let's check your weather and see what's happening. we're watching the tropics, area of low pressure south of grand caymen has a chance of -- even if. it doesn't become a tropical
7:39 am

it's way over-the-top offensive. >> yeah. >> that's a good segue. >> i'm not sure what kind of thumbs up. >> mr. roker with a check of the weather. >> i like way over the top. let's check it out for you. first of all, we do have that heat to talk about. talk about over the top. 92 degrees today in minneapolis. 97, 101 in phoenix -- in houston, i should say. factor in the humidity, feels like 103 in houston. 102, kansas city. 96, minneapolis. this heat will continue its march eastward. tomorrow you'll see 90s in washington, d.c., atlanta, also parts of florida. and then on wednesday we get up into the mid-90s here in new york city. well, today kicks off a substantial warming trend. by tuesday and all the way through friday, we'll see the mid-70s inland. even at the coast, low 70s are forecasted by noon today. a lot of that marine layer will break apart and left with partly cloudy conditions. by 4:00 p.m., the sun comes out warming us up to 60 degrees and the warming trend continues.
9:07 am
else where across the bay area, we're forecasting the warm temperatures. take a look at friday, 78 degrees. >> and that's your latest weather. natalie? ♪ body language >> thank you, al. now on to today's health, listening to your body, appetite changes, restless sleep pattern, aches and pains may be your body's way of telling you something is wrong. here to decode symptoms is laura moska and sara humphreys from "real simple" magazine which covers the topic in its current issue. good morning, ladies. good to have you here. so, as we were saying, sara, we took a look at some of the common health symptoms and everything from receding gums -- receding hairlines to bleeding gums, and sometimes people are afraid to ask their doctors if something is wrong. >> absolutely. >> embarrassed to ask the questions. and that's a mistake, right? >> right. this is not meant to incite
9:08 am
panic or paranoia but you need to listen to your body. it talks to you all the time. taking note of changes, symptoms you don't normally have can make you a healthier person and head off more serious conditions. and you should always talk to your doctor. >> even if it's a stupid xwe, you should always ask. let's go through the symptoms you should be looking at from head to toe, starting off with your hair thinning. in fact, effects a lot of women as we saw stories. female hair loss, it can be hereditary or hormonal changes. >> that gives us a clue that something is wrong on the inside. as you mentioned, it could be something like genetic factors or as simple as a ponytail that's too tight. there are more serious signs that can be found in the hair. if you're losing your hair, women will often know it's related to menopause or to their periods. right before they get their periods they may start to lose hair.
9:09 am
it can also be a sign of something more serious. iron deficiency, thyroid conditions, stress, crash diets, surgery, all kinds of things can be associated with hair loss. >> so, if it's atypical hair loss for you, time to go to the doctor and ask the questions? >> that's right. we normally lose about 100, 200 strands a day. if you're -- >> if your shedding all of a sudden? >> right. if your drain is getting clogged or your hairbrush is getting full, it's time to say, what's going on? >> what about a change in the whites of the eyes? that's an indicator of, you say, possible liver problems, if they start to turn yellowish. >> that's right. whites of our eyes are an important place to keep monitoring. if they turn grayish, that can be an indication there's a bone or joint condition. as you pointed out, jaundice or yellowing of the eyes can be a very serious symptom of liver dysfunction. >> the whites of your eyes, when they get grayer, age is a factor for a lot of these things. we were wondering at "real simple" what is it about your whites of your eyes get grayer
9:10 am
and some of it is really just age, unfortunately. >> not uncommon, when you brush your teeth, you notice your gums bleed a little as well. when do you know there's more of a problem here? >> well, really your gums should never bleed. if they're bleeding or swollen, that's an indication there's a problem. a lot of people are surprised to learn there's a connection between their oral health, their gum health, and their heart health. maybe if you're having bleeding gums, it's time to visit your cardiologist, not just your dentist. >> okay. and dry skin. i think a lot of us think it's a seasonal symptom. in fact, it can be an indicator of low thyroid as well, or deficiencies as well. >> that's right. the skin is the biggest organ in our body. one of the most most indicators of what our status is. when i take residents on rounds in the hospital, we actually look at the skin every morning of our patients. one thing you can do on yourself is actually just pinch your skin. >> the pinch test. >> right. we call it tenting if the skin
9:11 am
stays up. that means your dehydrated. that can be related to thyroid conditions. we also take the thumb and put it on the patient's chin and press in. if it leaves a pitting mark, we call that pitting edema, and that can actually be associated with heart failure or kidney disease. skin is an important place to look. >> it covers all of your body so it's going to be a huge -- one of your largest -- it is your largest organ. >> absolutely. >> next for toes, you know, i think you say look for leg and foot cramps that can be the result of poor circulation. >> yes. you know, having cramping in your legs can be a real common problem for a lot of people. it can be as simple as overuse, wrong shoe type, but a more moderate situation with cramping in the legs, some people describe it as charlie horses when they sleep. this can be an indication of a mineral deficiency, so your calcium levels, your potassium, sodium levels, you may just need to eat some more
9:12 am
bananas. i think it's important to keep in mind, with cramping in the legs, if it occurs when you're walking, that's a serious sign. that means there may be a blockage and may be time to see the vascular surgeon. >> what's common, we tend to do the internet web doctoring. we go on and self diagnose if we feel symptoms. why is that some of the problems that's leading to the misdiagnosis going on? >> talk about paranoia. it's good to do research yourself, that's fine to go online to a medical resource. but see a doctor in person because you really want to get an accurate diagnosis and an accurate treatment. self-medicating and self-treating can be dangerous. >> absolutely. thank you both. great information. still to come this morning, some explosive new details in the casey anthony murder trial as the prosecution presents its forensic evidence. but up next, from selling in an over 55 community to finding the right real estate agent, some answers to your real estate questions. but first, these messages.

♪ brick house ♪ she's a brick house this morning on "today's real estate," buying or selling. today's real estate expert and our brick house, barbara corcoran is here, from finding an agent to staging to sell. good to see. >> good morning, al. >> a lot of good questions. jumping right in with an e-mail from moline, illinois. sue says we'll be selling our home in the near future. how do i go about hiring a home stager and do i really need one? >> well, very few of us are capable of redoing a home to make it ready for sale because we can't walk in the buyer's shoes. i'm a total believer in hiring a home stager if you possibly can. the cost of hiring one is a lot less than people really think it is.
9:17 am
it will typically cost you, for the three main rooms, meaning the master bedroom, kitchen and living room, $5,500 to $7,500, which is a lot less than people think. it includes painting the room, refinishing the floors, buying the needed slip covers, pillows, refurnishing, buying a piece here and there. >> that sounds like a bargain. >> that's a bargain. and people think it cost ace lot more, so it's good to know that it's affordable for most people. what's important to know also is it's easy to find a home stager. the best sources are your local real estate agent because they work with them all the time. you should ask for two names and compare the work of each one, have them bring the photography they use. now, the other thing is, you can go on to international american home staging professionals which lists every home stager throughout the united states. that's another good way. lastly, i want to point out, they'll tell you that it makes a a1% difference in the sale price of your home. my practical experience is it makes more like a 5% difference. it's crazy not to consider that as an option. >> with those prices, i don't even need to be moving.
9:18 am
i'll just hire a home stager to fix up my house. >> why not? i never thought of that one. >> now let's go to diane from virginia on the phone with us. i understand you have a home on the market right now? >> caller: we sure do. >> so how can barbara help? >> caller: hi, barbara. thanks so much for the question. our home is located almost equal distance from two major cities, richmond, virginia, and charlottesville, virginia. is it okay to use two different locations to list the properties for more exposure? if so, does that mean paying two different commissions upon sale? >> that is a great idea. i have to hand it to you, i would never have thought of that. you can use two agents but the trick here is getting the agents to be enthusiastic about sharing the listing and sharing the commission. the best way to do that, i would think, would be to hire two agents from the same company in both of those cities, a large agency. let them work out how they're going to slice up the commission. the typical commission, of course, today even though it's never set, is between 5% and 6%. but don't worry about that. you'll only pay one commission and it's a really smart idea what you just thought of.
9:19 am
>> wow. >> i'm going to take credit for that idea. >> even you learn something. >> you bet ya. >> fantastic. thank you so much, diane. now we're going to go to an e-mail from peggy, who sounds like she's in the real estate business herself. she asks barbara, how would you go about selling a 55-plus community in this market? where would you market the property to attract the most 55-plus buyers? >> you should visit the other 55-plus communities in your area and find out where those buyers are coming from. what happens in this end of the business is you get waves of buyers from different locales. so, you want to find out where that sweet spot is and advertise to those areas where those empty nesters are coming from. the next thing you want to do is play up the amenities. it's not about the square foot or cost per square foot so much but more about what amenities come with the package, like the pool, the golf course, clubhouse, things 55-plus people love. also play up the little details
9:20 am
within the units themselves that make all the difference. things like a kitchen counter that's low enough to chop while you sit on a bench. things like that. or a master bedroom and the bath on the same floor. on the ground floor, rather. things like this attract people. pick wisely what you play up but make sure you know where those people are coming from. >> finally, we've got pam from long boat key, florida, writing, i want to buy a piece of property for $1.8 million. all right, pam. after i made my offer i was informed the property is a short sale controlled by the bank. i learned of $80,000 in arrears for property taxes. shouldn't the bank be holding the mortgage for that? and, what is a short sale? >> short sale is an agreement between homeowner and lender to sell the house for less than is owed on the mortgage. so, it implies a good deal. it isn't always a good deal. it depends on how you negotiate. there are absolutely no rules to negotiating with a lender different than it is with an individual homeowner, but the difference is, is that there's
9:21 am
no emotion involved and you usually get a straight answer. what you pay for the home should have nothing to do with it being a short sale or not and whether or not you want to pay the taxes. it should have everything to do with what is that home worth to you and simply make that bid? you'll get an answer quickly from a bank, that's the advantage of a short sale. but take a little extra time thinking through really what that home is worth. >> and the $80,000 in property taxes in arrears. >> it's open to negotiation or tell the lender, no, i'm not going to do that. if you're dealing with the homeowner, you're not really dealing with the person in charge. it's making the deal in writing to the learned. >> all right, good advice. you picked up something, too. >> i sure did. i love to learn. >> love that. coming up, lessons for parents raising boys to be confident and caring men. first, these messages. ike rowe , his family knows what to expect. hun, mike's coming -- let's get crackin'.

9:45 am
editor-in-chief of with the woman's day" and mother of a little guy herself is here to help us out. is there a big difference when it comes to raising young men and women? >> as we were discussing, boys and girls very different. different in how they think and some action. while some parenting tips, essential you can use them and apply to girls, we really did focus on the school age boy. >> we have five tips. there are obviously more but these are the five we think are the most important. this one can be difficult, to help him manage his emotion. >> boys tend to bottle up their emotions. they see on the big screen the super man or cowboy and they're not super expressive. the first thing you want to do is get him talking. he research shows we ask girls much more often how they're feeling than boys. with boys you don't necessarily want to come out and ask question after question -- >> you want to go around -- >> you want to coax it out of them and do it over time. you can say, i notice how you're feeling.
9:46 am
bring it up a little later. seems like things didn't go that well in school today, do you want to talk about it? get him to talk about it over time. >> you want to find out how he's doing and also in tip number two, lesson number two, you want to teach him empathy, how others are feeling. >> research shows, there's a huge study in michigan that showed people today are 40% less em empathic than 20 years ago. they blame that on computer, games, social networks, empathy is super important. one of my favorite tips is reading fixes. research shows the part of your brain you use to follow and process what's happening to a fictional character is the same part of the brain that you use in real life. so, every little minute he does that is exercising that brain. >> and the what-if game? >> say you're watchinging a baseball game and you see the pitcher, bottom of the ninth and all the pressure's on him. you turn to your son and say, if you were that guy, how would you be feeling right now? put yourself in his shoes. the more you do that, the more likely he is to carry those
9:47 am
rules on through his life. >> number three, one we think with boys, we don't pay that much attention to, but strengthen his feeling about self, sense of self. >> this isn't about ego, this is about self-confidence. you want to skip the false praise. boys tend to focus on their talents. what you want to do is praise the effort. if he gets an "a" on the test, you say, great job, you did such a great job studying, not you're the smartest kid. the other thing su don't want to label hip. you don't want to excuse bad behavior by saying boys will be boys. what he does is say, okay, i'm a boy, i can do that negative behavior. you want to get away from those stereotypes. >> number four, you want to instill respect for others. >> respect is super important. so, the way you need to set a good example, not only in how you deal with his teachers and coaches, how often have you been on the sideline, you see some dad go crazy about a play to the coach. you want to restrain yourself from doing that because your son is going to pattern your behavior 150%. >> that goes right into number
9:48 am
five, which is, show affection. >> affection is super important. now, this is the thing about affection with boys. it's all in the timing. you know, you might have had an 8 or 9-year-old who loved kisses but by the time they reach middle school, they're going, yo, stands back. but you want to still do that. a boy who grows up with affection will tend to show affection. >> i can't freeze him at 9 now where he's still kissing me? >> the other thing, al, for you, get physical. that roughhousing a son and father do actually really helps a boy to manage his impulses. >> he just knocked me on the butt with a side sweep from tae kwon do the other day. good advice. thanks so much. still to come, how to bring a mediterranean touch to your family dinner.

by keeping my airways open a full 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. and it's steroid-free. spiriva does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and call your doctor right away if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better. breathing with copd is no small thing. ask your doctor about spir a. breathing with copd is no small thing. be so nice?

[ male announcer ] ask your doctor about pristiq -- a prescription medicine proven to treat depression. pristiq is thought to work by affecting the levels of two chemicals in the brain -- serotonin and norepinephrine. tell your doctor right away if your depression worsens or you have unusual changes in mood, behavior, or thoughts of suicide. anti-depressants can increase suicidal thoughts and behaviors in children, teens, and young adults. pristiq is not approved for children under 18. do not take pristiq with maois. taking pristiq with nset pain relievers, aspirin, or blood thinners may increase bleeding risk. tell your doctor about all your medications, including those for migraine,
10:14 am
to avoid a potentially life threatening condition. pristiq may cause or worsen high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or glaucoma. tell your doctor if you have heart disease, or before you reduce or stop taking pristiq. side-effects may include nausea, dizziness and sweating. for me, pristiq is a key in helping me treat my depression. break-ups and baby news. >> here is andy cohen host of bravo's "watch what happens live." how are you? >> hi, ladies. great, how are you? >> what a moment on the mtv awards. >> do you have matching eye shadow today? >> no. mine is coppery. >> i digress. >> mtv awards. >> yes. >> what a shot. what a picture in the paper of justin timberlake.
